Picking out the perfect wedding dress is part of the battle but if you really want to look stunning on your wedding day, you need to make sure that your beauty regime is on top form. Just like any other area of fashion, wedding beauty trends are always changing year on year. This year has seen a big move away from the more over the top looks and there’s a much bigger focus on subtlety and minimalism. When you’re planning your wedding and trying to decide on your hair and makeup, make sure that you keep these trends in mind.
In the past, it was fashionable for brides to wear their hair in large elaborate styles, almost like a centerpiece. These days, that isn’t as popular and people are deciding to go for something a bit more low-key instead. Making use of the natural features of your hair and accenting them is a much nicer way to create a style that is personal to you, rather than having an overblown style. It’s also a good way to save money on expensive hair stylists if you are trying to stick to a strict budget.
With a move away from heavy makeup has brought more of a focus on skin care in the weeks and months leading up to the wedding day. Because brides are opting to rely on their natural assets instead of excess beauty products, they need to make sure that their skin is in peak condition for the big day. Some older brides are deciding to have a facelift procedure in preparation for their wedding. This might seem drastic but new procedures aren’t anywhere near as invasive as they used to be. Having a good skin routine in place is vital if you want to pull off a more natural look for your wedding.
If you’re wearing a thick red lipstick then you don’t need to worry too much about your lips underneath but if you’re following the latest trends in wedding beauty then you’ll be relying on the natural features of your lips. Using a good quality, homemade lip mask to make them fuller and give them better color so all they need is a small splash of a much lighter lipstick.
When it comes to makeup, this year’s brides are looking for something light that will simply accentuate all of the great natural features that they already have. When you’re trying to choose colors, make sure you steer clear of anything too heavy like deep reds. Go for softer colors instead like a light pink eyeshadow and use berry colors for lipstick instead of reds or purples.
All of these trends are geared towards bringing out the best using what you already have, rather than trying to cover anything up. That gives you more flexibility than some other trends and your focus should always be on cultivating a style that lets your personality shine through, it is your big day after all.
